|The Electric Flag chronology|
A Long Time Comin' is the first album by American rock band the Electric Flag, released in 1968. The album has a mix of musical styles, including soul along with blues and rock, with a horn section.
It opens with an updated take on the Howlin' Wolf blues classic "Killing Floor" and includes an adaptation of Sticks McGhee's "Drinkin' Wine, Spo-Dee-O-Dee" titled "Wine". The album also contains "Groovin’ Is Easy" and "Over-Lovin’ You", which had been released as a single in 1967.
It is widely seen as an ambitious debut album by music critics. The album was somewhat of a failure in the charts, much to the disappointment of Bloomfield, who had worked hard on the album.[ citation needed ] His disappointment was worsened by the success of the Al Kooper directed Super Session , which, featuring Bloomfield, charted much higher than A Long Time Comin' despite only being recorded over a period of two days.[ citation needed ]
The original LP record has 10 tracks, and a 1988 Columbia Records reissue on CD has four bonus tracks.
